After an air display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and on return to land at Farnborough Airport, one of the Hawk T Mk 1 aircraft operated by the Red Arrows (RAFAT) experienced a tyre blowout on landing.

There were no injuries, but tyre debris was found on the runway.

The runway was closed for approximately 45 minutes and was reopened at 12:45

Emergency services were called as a precaution at about 12:00 BST just after the RAF display team landed.

The RAF said the team’s displays over the weekend were unaffected and the plane would be back in action once it has a new tyre.

The Red Arrows are due to perform at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, London Pride and the Wales Airshow this weekend.

An RAF spokesman said: “A Hawk aircraft from the Red Arrows suffered a burst tyre on landing at Farnborough. Both the aircraft and the pilot were unharmed and the aircraft will be available for use in the near future.”
